In case you didn't get the message this past fall, the City of Superior is making a change to their billing process for sewage rates - effective Jan 1, 2014.  SWL&P will no longer be billing customers for sewage use;  That charge will be billed directly from the city.  Customers who live or obtain services from SWL&P will notice the changes with their first bill of the year.

The city will begin billing for sewage usage on a quarterly basis, with the first bill arriving in April.

Since 1995, the City of Superior has been in a partnership with SWL&P for sewage billing;  Up until now, the utility has billed customers for their usage and reimbursed the city in return.  Billing changes have mandated the change from this procedure.
